What this gift will do

Poverty can deprive people of opportunity, but your donation can help create opportunities, by helping an individual start a business. Tearfund and our partners encourage the formation of Self-Help Groups, where group members pool their savings to enable them to start businesses and advocate for resources from government and financial institutions. Your donation funds training in financial literacy, budgeting, and planning, as well as support services for the group.

"I received a loan and bought 25 chickens. From the profits, I repaid my loan and have enough to support my seven children." - Samjhana from Nepal
